good thread...mine is the one that we can all recite at once, though memory fails, about "...all we want is to move the human race ahead a step or two...", which you'd think I'd take the time to find and place here, but we all know it from the smoking interview in 67 or so...

Maybe not the best, but I've always liked the one from the Shorline Summer Solstice show in...89? Not sure and too lazy to look it up at the moment. Anyway, there is a prolonged space between songs in the first set where Bobby is having some ongoing issues with his equipment. Jerry looks over at Bobby, pushes his glasses up his nose and approaches the mic with a grin:
"Bobby's have a little trouble with his stuff"
This always struck as quite funny with it's possible multi-level interpretations. Electronic difficulties...or short-short wardrobe malfunction? The mind boggles.

Yeah, or the one about "...Dead heads...need to get a life..." (I paraphrase).

Another classic, of the "intense, I am IN to this!" Jerry is from banter at Harding:

"If you were home listening to the show, or if you ARE home listening to the show, you are hearing the music FASTER than you are if you are in the hall!?" to which Bob chimes "we won't bore you with lengthy explanations of this phenomenon"...though he stumbles on "lengthy"...per Bob.

It's not a quote, but I like to hear Jerry cutting-up with Grisman on Shady Grove. Sometimes they even impressed themselves.
